    July 13, 2021 - Excellent wine at its prime. Velvety tannins, strong fruit well integrated. Hats off to Paul Hobbs

    February 27, 2021 - 5 years later this wine is still drinking beautify. Perhaps I detect a bit of raisin notes but it is still an elegant and classic wine with substance. Great color and nose, very much like the last note that I wrote on this wine, it's still in a very good spot. Dark red fruit, cassis, cedar. Medium - full-bodied, with substantive depth, yet elegant. Again I'm reminded of why I think very highly of Paul Hobbs, a lovely Napa wine that is holding up beautifully with no signs of loosing traction.

    February 19, 2020 - 5 ans après ma première bouteille.... quel vin magnifique, la finesse prend la place avec un nez charmeur et une bouche fruitée et complexe. La dernière sera ouverte dans un autre 5 ans, minimum !

    September 27, 2019 - Celle ci nous a semblé un brin sweet et compoté,
    style gros shiraz Australien avec de la chauffe.
    Pas mal moins bon que les autres.
    On avait acheté un six pack de la LCBO en 2010...elles avaient
    un beau rabais de plus!

    (Paul Hobbs Napa Cabernet Sauvignon) #6; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-over-oaked; enormous vanilla; cedar box; a little tobacco which is nice, but a solid foundation of wood; TASTE-clearly an over-oaked Cabernet from California; not my style; cranberry; some New England wood; this kind of wine just bores me; RP-92; GV-87
